The special night-dubbed "Drew Power Night"- will include a moment of silence prior to the game to honour the former Panther who passed away recently and "DP14" T-shirts will be on sale for $20 with all proceeds going to the Power family.
The men's hockey team will also be recognizing Power with a display located outside their dressing room.
On Saturday night both the UPEI men's and women's teams take to the ice. The men's team will host Acadia at 7 p.m., while the women will play the Dalhousie Tigers at 7:30 p.m.
As a bonus, local band Vintage will perform in the CARI complex lobby from 6:30-7:10 p.m. and again between 7:30 and 8:10 p.m. A cash bar will be located in the lobby for ticket holders aged 19 and older.
"A Panther hockey doubleheader is a great way for fans to see the men's and women's hockey teams in action," said Ron Annear, director of UPEI Athletics and Recreation. "We invite all UPEI students, staff, faculty, and community members to join us this weekend to kick-start the second half of the season where we'll begin the drive to the AUS Championship."
Tickets can be purchased at the box office one hour before game time.
